Scandinavian Rugs - Scandinavia is known for their Rya and Rollakan Scandinavian rugs. Named after a town in southwest Sweden, Rya Swedish rugs date back to the 16th century. At first the rugs were made in solid colors, featuring black, gray, white and yellow but as time passed geometric shapes and floral designs were introduced. Used by nobility as bedding and a display of social standing, Rya Swedish rugs were often displayed as tapestries and exhibited as family heirlooms. Rollakan rugs are distinctive Scandinavian folk weavings that areflat woven tapestry rugs. In recent months we have seen a tremendous increase in the demand for Mid-Century Modern Rugs and for vintage rugs from Scandinavia especially. Vintage Scandinavian Rugs work well as transitional pieces by adding an art deco feel and look which goes hand in hand with the current interior design trends. The shift towards mid-century modern decors has surely done wonders for the prices of Scandinavian rugs and they are finally being recognized for the great work of art that they truly are. Scandinavian Rugs can be found in both flat weaves as well as piled carpets. Below you will find a selection of vintage Scandinavian rugs.

Prices for good Scandinavian rugs has been increasing tremendously. The recent spike in interest in Mid-Century modern interiors has rejuvenated the demand for rugs and carpets from Scandinavia in a big way. The Scandinavia rugs are truly great works of art and are appreciated by many collectors, designers and consumers from all over the world. The great example of Scandinavian rugs have struck a chord with people who are looking for something different, more modernist and, in some cases, nostalgic.
